#Quote
1There's an epidemic in our country of girls and women feeling bad about themselves based on what 0.5% of the human race looks like.
2I grew up with funny and interesting women, and my friends are funny, interesting women. So I can't think of any story where those women don't come into play. It's the same as how I can't imagine writing a story with no men. It's just not real.
3You push so far past the normal boundaries of what's okay in society. I'm always fully aware of "You can't do this." When someone really believes in what they're saying, but it's crazy, it's like my favorite thing on earth... Crazy's just crazy and there's nowhere to go. You can have a point of view, it can be very strange, but we have to know your reasoning.
4[harsh review from a critic focusing on her weight] I felt really bad for someone who is swimming in so much hate. I just thought, that's someone who's in a really bad spot, and I am in such a happy spot. I laugh my head off every day with my husband and my kids who are mooning me and singing me songs.
5I believe it matters how you treat people. I believe in Heaven.
6[on wardrobe problems] I want separates, for the love of God, because everything's like a bad prom dress. You can find a million bad sleeveless dresses in satin. I'm like "Where's a good blouse and a great trouser?".
